Mother’s Day Smiles – What is a Mother?

Sunday, May 10, 2015

My blog today is in memory of my mother who died from breast cancer in 2004. I wrote it two years ago and would like to share it with you again this year.

What is a mother?

Someone who knows you’re special….

…. even if you’re one of many.

A mother is someone who …

… gives a kiss when you need one

… is always ready to cuddle

… listens when you need to talk

… shelters you from harm

… gives you a boost up if you need one

… will try to stop you from doing something that might cause you harm

… takes you where you need to go

… always gives good advice

… teaches you what you need to know in the world

… loves you no matter what

… and thinks you’re beautiful

… even if you’re adopted

Today is a day to think of your mother wherever she may be, and smile …

    So sweet and I can empathize with you. My Mother passed away back in 1994 because of Diabetes and complications. I still miss her to this day as I know you miss yours. We're so thankful for all they gave us, all they taught us and how they loved us so much. I know that you feel like me too, when you know that there hasn't been anyone else in your life that has given that same special love that only a mother can. Your mother will always be in your heart and my mother will be in mine so much too.

    Hugs to you, Karen

    What a beautiful tribute to your mom, and I just adopted for my mom, also. She passed away 12 years ago, and now daddy is married to a wonderful woman who I introduce as my mom, and they've been married for 10 years. In fact, I just dropped them off at the house, after I spent a couple of hours with them at her favorite restaurant.

    Thanks Carolyn, and Happy Mother's Day to you, also!

    Oh, sooo precious. Every day is Mother's Day, not just when there's stressing over things to be done or things we have no control over - even decisions we need to make, because 'mothers' whoever they be, come into our lives as guiding lights. We are 'better' daughters (and sons) when we stop berating ourselves for every 'glitch' or moments of circumstances when we recognize our imperfections. If we can just step back and look at her in a beautiful sunrise, sunset; flowers waving on the hills; sparkles in the water, her love is everywhere and her gentle glory surrounds us, embracing us in the balance of wisdom.
